Google has removed Parler from the Google Play Store, a social platform popular among Trump supporters, making it incomparably harder to access when it comes to Android users.
Ramp for Trump
Google said in a statement that expects applications that represent social networks to have rules that remove posts that incite violence, and that the posts in the Parler application incited violence, after the events during the week, at the US Capitol.
Twitter permanently banned access to the private account of the still current US President Donald Trump, because their assessment was that Trump incited violence, while Facebook forbade Trump to publish anything through an official account earlier in the month.
Not only violence, but also terrorism and armed rebellion
Screenshots from the Parler application that the American media had access to, they point to references to the “shooting squad”, as well as calls to bring weapons to the presidential inauguration later in the month. In its announcement, Google had already pointed out to the company behind the Parler application, violations of the rules in work and the need for their moderation.
Parler was launched in 2018, and this year it became popular with supporters of Donald Trump’s policies, primarily because of its relaxed rules regarding content moderation. It is easy to see from CEO Parler’s statement that regulating these rules was never in their plans. “We are the main community square of the community, an open city square, without censorship.” “If you can say something on the streets of New York, you can say it on Parler,” said director John Mace in mid-2020.
